Firstly, thanks for the patch.

AFAIK  you should only get the  "Full Scan"  option for DVB-T cards anyway.
DVB-S doesn't make any sense in this context, and no one with a DVB-C card
has got back to us with a usable full scan. I think DVB-C should be doable
if someone with a card can work out how to step through the frequencies with
meaningful parameters.
